Train keep a rollin all night long – watercolor
I have never been into trains that much, even with my stepdad working for the railroads for 30 years. I think they are incredible machines, but as far as wanting train sets, it just never interest me. What I loved about the railroad industry, are the tracks. I have always loved walking the tracks, laying pennies on the track, hunting along the track, I guess just exploring along tracks. I’m not sure what it is with me, but put me in a woods, creek or along a railroad tracks, and I was a happy boy. Where I lived we had tracks in several places, but very seldom did we see a train, and there were some tracks where a train never came through, at least not that I had seen. I think they purposely laid the tracks, just for me to explore. It’s a passenger train rolling through snow, with steam rolling out the top. What was odd are the green pines and trees in the background, with all the snow on the ground. This is a 7.5″ x 10″ watercolor on 140 lb coldpress paper.
HAPPY NEW YEAR to all!
